They're low carbon footprint and earth friendly.

Bob and Ray discuss the bad luck befalling the neighbor's rabbits' foot farm YouTube, begins last half.

Would you wear them, Althouse?

Palladian said...

I love the idea of the little squirrel claws scratching at the wearer's shoulders all day long.

Dogs may chase you down the street, while the descendants from the Squirrel Clan of the local Indian tribe will welcome your sense of style. I dare you to wear them in a close up on flicker.

Where's the matching squirrel scrotum pendant?

Ann Althouse said...

"Would you wear them, Althouse?"

I don't even get to the point where I think about the actual feet. I don't like the gold part. Looks cheap. If you're going to hand craft something, don't just use craft store junk. And the style doesn't go with something as raw as real feet. Make something footworthy!

The ultimate "F*-you" to a PETA activist!
In wonderfully bad taste, and truly beautiful looking.

"They're made from little baby squirrel's feet! Aren't they cute??"

"Monster! You monster!" the animal rights activist sobs....

was there anyone who did not carry a rabbit foot key chain or pendant in the late sixties? not everyone, but it wascreally common. so what is the difference?

I see this as part of a pool-lounging ensemble. For the top you would have a squirrel head covering each breast, and the bottom would be decorated with hanging squirrel tails. Any fabric would somehow match the gold pattern of the earrings, possible by including actual gold chains.

Did that nice black doggie from Cincinnati murder this squirrel? My dog would love to catch a squirrel, but she never can.

I said I Brake For Squirrels. I didn't say I always brake in time.

Nasty, Brutish & Short said...

Obviously not a Glendale squirrel. They're black.

Has Meade told you about the cicadas yet? People turn them into earings.

I like the image of Capt. Hook Squirrel at the webpage.

Seriously, you should buy a pair and wear it to an animal rights symposium at your school or something like that. it would be hilarious.

Just use road kill, then everything will be PETA friendly.

Mepps is still paying for squirrel tails, don't throw them away! To a bored kid over the summer with a Crossman pellet gun and an endless supply of pellets it seemed like a pretty good deal back then. Especially red squirrels. I hate them chattering little bastards with a passion. It's almost like they're begging for it.

I break for those earrings!

Fred4Pres said...

Oh, Meade beat me to it, well not surprising, Meade managed to get Titus to shut up for a day with a brilliant response.

This seems appropriate to this thread.

Chip Ahoy said...

Now that's class.

They would go great with a Davy Crocket hat, and a fox wrap that bites its own tail by an alligator clip clued in its mouth, and with bunny slippers made from real rabbits.

I feel a Photoshopping session coming on.

This is top shelf primitive jewelry for the high end savage.

You could have a side business making little rings to put on the squirrel earrings' feet, like those charms they put on bracelets.

All Republicans hate squirrels. Wecome to the dark side garage.

Lawgiver said...

There is a three legged squirrel near my place of work. We named him tripod.

Hmmmm...

Ralph L said...

Eew, pierced earrings, that's disgusting!

They would look good with the fox shoulder firs I've inherited. I just love those lifeless little heads glaring at other people.

Meade said...

Yes!!!

We had a pair of real cute flying squirrels that would come in clockwork to a bird feeder every night, and I wanted to show my young daughter how a flying squirrel flew on youtube. So we sat down together and found a few good ones, but then found several of these different kind of flying squirrels. So we had to stop that learning session short.

Lawgiver said...

The was awesome garage, thanks!

Kev said...

Fred4Pres and garage, great videos!

I especially got a kick out of the fact that the lady in Fred's video was preparing the squirrel meat with nuts in it; that means you can eat your food, and your food's food, at the same time!

And you notice they don't actually show the kid who shot the squirrel eating the sandwiches. I wouldn't normally think of wild game as "kid food," or someone would have capitalized on it already (Deer-Fil-A, anyone?).

Have there been any cases of wearers running in front of cars?
